Seriously, someone take away my Kohl’s card because my winter wardrobe is fine and dandy as it is. I basically had to buy all new winter clothes, but I really need to stop now. There’s nothing like losing 120 pounds to make you a total clothes horse.
I blame the mailing lists. I’m on a couple e-mail lists for plus size stores, like Lane Bryant and Fashion Bug, and they keep sending me $10 coupons and notifications of 40% off sales to lure me into their stores. Then when I get there I try on stuff and check myself out in the mirror and think “Oh my God! I look soooo cute!” and I’m buying more than I intended just because I feel so damn good about myself lately.
I need to stay on the mailing lists so I get the coupons when I really do need to buy something. I think I’ll have to start deleting them without reading them. I obviously have no self control in this area anymore, which is odd because I was never that into clothes shopping before. Weight loss has really made me vain.
